How do you kill the Albatross as a Druid?????

*Edit: Thanks to all the wonderful help, I got it done :)

I just started the Timeless Isle stuff yesterday. I decided to give the Albatross (end quest) a go today. I've been at this for hours to the point I'm about to give up on this place :(

I've been to Wowhead.com and have read the comments and have gone step by step. I get to over the red lake and start attacking. I can't even get him past roughly 15%(?) damage before I'm out of mana. Then he starts back up flying (with me) away from where I need to be.

The only way I can seem to get off him is by logging out, back in to then find myself falling to my impending doom!

I know I'm doing something wrong, but I have no idea what it is I need to be doing right??

Any Feral Druids out there that can give me pointers on what spells I should be using to kill this thing?? I'm sooo tired of going past where I need to be because I can't kill him, dying, and then having repair bills after repair bills. If I can't figure this out tonight, I'm just going to have to be done with this nightmare of a place. It started off pretty fun but now I just want to leave TI and never step foot back there; and just carry on with the regular (much more fun) stuff that this character does on a daily basis.

Please, someone help me. :)

The page and it's 1st comment are where I've been at: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=8730

Thanks :) I'll give it yet another go, I've been using the 1st 2 but not auto-attack, it's not even on my bar :/ Never needed it before.

Thanks for answering me :)

I have high anxiety (that I do take medicine for) but this Island is seriously over-riding that :P

Buy this Golden Glider

Go into fatigue waters away from the island, near by where you have to turn in the quest.

Fly up fairly high, and then move toward the direction of the quest. You'll be dismounted but you'll be able to use the glider.

Use it, and glide down to the quest location.

You can't shapeshift into cat form on the bird?!

Moonkin form works fine. :\

Basically, because just right-clicking the target in druid form maintains auto-attack. On some alts it's on my bar because it helps. But, I've managed 3 1/2 years so far without on (this 1) my main. Sooo 'noob' of me; I know :P Never used/needed it before; but I'm glad I asked, because I'm keeping it there now :)

Nope, tried and tried but won't let me. I did get him down to half-way thanks to the 1st reply :) , I'm circling again and start doing it; I just need to be a little faster though.

Try damaging the bird down to around 20% first, then attacking it later on where you want to drop.

Won't let me go into bear form. It says when I try that "You can't do that right now." This is not working for me, that MoU. Oh well, still waiting to complete the circling to get to the lake again..

Using the ability Might of Ursoc (green background with a funky bear looking thing on it) shifts you to bear form automatically. It's worked for me every time.

With heart of the wild popped your caster-form DPS might go up enough to kill it with Wrath, and it costs no mana... 45 seconds of that might be enough?

Other than that, I have no idea. :(

It's really lame you can't go into feral forms with it.

Tired of Blizzard overlooking druid forms for this kind of stuff.

I remember working on Yogg and was tanking something and got picked up by a tenticle and knocked me out of bear form and killed me.

Or trying to get the 50 pvp kills for the meta achievement, "what a long, strange trip it's been".

Use Dash, it will pop you in cat form.

Thanks!

Might of Ursoc worked for me, but better yet (for future reference) use Dash.
And, thanks (also)!

Will remember this for my many other alt ferals :D

O.k., now looking back (after the fact) I was doing that all wrong. I was trying to go into bear-form 1st, as the MoU spell is on my 'bear' hotbar. I think a re-arranging of my spells are in order here ;)

Thanks again, everyone for being sooo super-helpful!!! :)
